LISA RIVARD PHOTOGRAPHY

Caroline & Andrew

What can I say about Lisa Rivard Photography? My fiancé and I recently did our engagement shoot with Lisa and her husband, Jim, and when she sent us the sneak peeks of the images I was completely speechless because I was so blown away by how beautiful the images were - they were better than I ever could have imagined! Lisa really knows how to capture that golden hour sunlight! What meant more though was the actual experience of the shoot and working with Lisa and Jim. They both made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable, it felt like we had known them for years. Bonus: my fiancé left the shoot saying he had way more fun than he thought he would (and isn't that the real goal when it comes to forcing your partner to take pictures in the cold?!) We cannot wait to work with them again for our wedding day photography (and hopefully many special occasions beyond that!)

Katie & Nick

We will be forever grateful of the beautiful photos Lisa captured of a special time in our lives. She has a magical way of finding the perfect angle, lighting and of course expressions. Lisa's joyful personality instantly put us at ease and made us feel comfortable and relaxed during our session. I would never hesitate to recommend her to any couple looking to capture their love in photographs!

Emma & Christian

Lisa and Jim were absolutely amazing to work with. Right from the beginning of reaching out to Lisa, she was very responsive and answered all my questions about navigating an engagement photoshoot and what to expect on our wedding day. Lisa provided us with great timelines and suggestions for our photoshoot and when the day came, despite the cold weather and rain, our photos turned out amazing! Lisa and Jim made us feel so comfortable and guided us through the beautiful Guelph campus for our engagement photoshoot and we couldn't be happier with the way our pictures turned out. We are very much looking forward to our wedding day and how easy Lisa will make it for us and our guests. Thank you to an amazing duo who know what they are doing and do it so so well!

I can't say enough about Lisa. I usually hate pictures of myself but I loved every picture that she took. She made the experience easy and fun. She has always answered my emails in a very timely manner which is really important to me. I can't wait to see what pictures she does for us on our wedding!

Lindsay & Oliver

Lisa is extremely organized & her communication skills are exceptional. She was extremely timely with her responses and went above and beyond to support us with our big day. She adds so many little details that amount to an absolutely tremendous photography experience. Lisa’s photography style is exactly what we had envisioned for our wedding and the images turned out stunning. We loved how quickly she sent us sneak peeks! She was flexible on the day of & captured all the shots we needed in a timely manner...plus more! She was very accommodating and understanding throughout the pandemic wedding planning process and we count ourselves as extremely lucky to have had a vendor like her. We will certainly use Lisa for any future photography needs & would recommend her to any couples looking to get married!

Michelle & Chris

Lisa and her husband are an absolute pleasure to work with! From our first "get to know you" conference call to our engagement photos, Lisa has been so responsive and wanting to make sure that we are getting everything we are looking for through this process. She is easy to talk to with a high level of professionalism. We can't wait to have her shoot our wedding next year!

Sylvia & Fernando

We can't thank you enough for capturing our day and sharing with us such breathtaking pictures. The photos are absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!

Nicole & Andrew

"My fiancé and I used her for our engagement photos and are using her for our wedding day as well. She is so caring and amazing to deal with – always checking in on us every month, making sure everything we need is there for us and super supportive. I would recommend her to ANYONE for any type of photoshoot you are looking for.”

Deanna & Colton

Lisa did our engagement photos for us and she was fantastic! She listened to our needs as a couple and our vision for the photos. The photos turned out fantastic. Additionally, she is very responsive to any forms of communication and offers great value for her products.

Lindsay & Oliver

Where do I start when it comes to Lisa Rivard? She is incredible to work with and she easily adapts to the personalities of the people she’s shooting. Both her & her husband, Jim, make the entire shoot relaxing & entertaining. Within minutes, both my partner & I felt like we’d known them for years as it was such a comfortable atmosphere. She adds so many little details that amount to an absolutely tremendous photography experience. Lisa’s photography style is exactly what we had envisioned & we are beyond excited to work with her again for our wedding. Lisa is very quick to respond, attentive & reliable. She has been very accommodating & understanding throughout the pandemic wedding planning process and we count ourselves as extremely lucky to be working with such a wonderful couple.

Kelsey & Jordan

Where do I even start! The photos are beyond what I expected and she has an amazing light and airy style. Lisa goes above and beyond when it comes to her clients and boy she does not disappoint! She gave great direction and advice for posing and positioning. She is polite, professional, and a joy to work with. Book her. I know I will be in the future!

I've done family photos with Lisa twice now and both were great experiences and produced fantastic photos. The first time she came to our house which worked well for us since our youngest child was still napping quite often. The second time we did photos in the Arboretum in Guelph. Lisa was very responsive and communicative leading up to the session, keeping us up to date on weather forecasts etc. The turnaround time for the photos was quick as well. And Lisa gives you digital copies off all the photos so you choose what to download and print. My husband and I also did headshots with Lisa which were fabulous as well.

Emily & Family

“Lisa has been the best photographer we could have ever asked for. She listened to exactly what we were looking for and delivered! She has gone above and beyond for us time and time again and we are so grateful for her fun, relaxed personality. The pictures turned out absolutely amazing – we can’t stop looking at them and showing them off. Thank you so much Lisa!”   

Amber & Family

Lisa Rivard took stunning photos of my little family. She was exceptional with my two very busy, always in movement and curious children. We have so many precious photos that we will treasure for years to come. She went above and beyond scoping out a location, chosen by me, and ensured she would have the best lighting and angles. She even recommended a time change to get the best lighting and it was brilliant! Lisa was thoughtful, responsive, accommodating and very trustworthy.

Sherri & Family

Our family had such an enjoyable photography session with Lisa this week. Our grandchildren were actually very cooperative and had so much fun. Our 4 yr old grandson adored her. She has such a kind heart and knew exactly how to keep his attention. She made the session so delightful and personable. Her eye for detail and capturing such special moments totally amazed us. She is so very patient and flexible. Her incredible talent and personality shines through in her work. Lisa has done several photo shoots for my family and every session has been unique, creative and exceptional. She goes above and beyond to make sure everyone's personality is captured. Thank you so much Lisa. Your work is professional and outstanding!

Tina & Family

A University graduation during covid is, like so many other occasions, a little less eventful. We asked Lisa to take some photos of our daughter with her cap and gown to at least have a memento of her day. Lisa stopped by the house to assess the venue and lighting. Her attention to detail was more than impressive and her manner of communicating was so relaxing and comfortable. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the incredible photos she produced, not only of our daughter but of the entire family!! Her craftsmanship truly contributed to our daughters day, and we will look no further for a photographer in the future!! Absolutely fantastic!!

Sheila & Family

Brittany & Family

Lisa has captured so many special moments for our family so I didn't have to think twice about who I wanted to do our family photos for us this summer!!! Lisa is so professional, she works so well with kids and has such an eye for detail!!

“Professional, passionate, fun, kind, patient, with a keen eye. That’s how I would describe our ‘go to’ photographer Lisa. The amount of time and care she puts into each photo shoot truly shines through. At the same time she is able to connect with children making you feel at ease with her unwavering patience. She brings out the magic in all ages and makes it shine through her lens. Thank you for being so wonderful Lisa!”    

Amber & Family

“My sister has used Lisa Rivard Photography for her photo sessions with her family for years. When we had our baby boy, we decided to call Lisa for our family/newborn photo shoot. Lisa absolutely blew us away! My three year old daughter started by hiding behind my legs. Within two minutes Lisa had managed to make her feel comfortable. All of a sudden, my daughter was literally stealing her baby brother's photo shoot! Lisa has a lot of great vision/ideas and was also very open and respectful of any ideas we also had. My husband, who has previously hated having his photo taken, has already mentioned an autumn photo shoot with Lisa. Capture your milestones, family and just your Wednesdays with Lisa Rivard Photography. You will not regret it!!!    

Denise & Family

"Lisa was excellent! We had photos taken of our newborn with his sibling, parents, grandparents, etc. Lisa was not only flexible with her plan, she helped to keep everyone engaged and enthusiastic. Life with a newborn is challenging for sure, but Lisa captured the joyfulness of the occasion through photographs. I could not have asked for a better experience or more beautiful keepsakes. Thank-you."

Shami & Family

"We had Lisa do family photos of a big group of us. She was so thoughtful in picking a beautiful location, while also making sure the older people in our group wouldn't need to walk too far. She is fantastic with the kids, and makes us all feel at ease. The results of all of the photos were beautiful. She was able to capture the personalities of the kids perfectly. Thanks Lisa!"

Karin & Family

“Lisa was wonderful at capturing my family in a carefree session that allowed some play and freedom to be ourselves. She used helpful props like bubbles and balls to engage our little son who loves being busy. I would highly recommend Lisa if you are looking for professionalism while offering beautiful, bright and natural photos to treasure for a life time.”

Katherine & Family

I didn’t have a maternity shoot this pregnancy. It didn’t matter to me. Doing a newborn photoshoot wasn’t a big deal to me. I wasn’t going to do it. But I took a chance on an Ayr photographer that my sister raves about. Thank you Lisa Rivard! I will cherish this day and these photos forever.   

Baby Aiden

“Lisa was incredible at helping our family to feel at ease and to have fun at our shoot. She is wonderfully engaging for children and easily shot in our favourite outdoor location. She managed to capture the personalities of each family member and the dynamic we have. So delighted with our beautiful keepsake photos.” 

Michelle & Family

"Lisa captured four generations of our family easily and perfectly. She captured interactions between the oldest family members with the youngest which were priceless. We were all very pleased with the results and the way the session was conducted, and the location which Lisa chose. I would recommend using Lisa for any photography needs."

Ann & Family

“You have been extremely professional and also personable, and your help to calm a bunch of excited girls [for the birthday party] was greatly appreciated. Thank you for doing above and beyond.”   

Chia-Yu & Family

“Lisa made my photo shoot painless and fun. I loved the end results and would happily recommend Lisa Rivard Photography to my friends!”
